Portsmouth: Predicted XI to face Wigan Athletic

Portsmouth: Predicted XI to face Wigan Athletic - Portsmouth News

Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett will be hoping that his side can get a win against Wigan Athletic at the weekend and find the back of the net in the process.

Pompey opened their League One campaign with a 0-0 draw against Shrewsbury Town before visiting Rochdale and being held to a second consecutive goalless draw in the division.

Today they come up against Wigan, who were relegated from the Championship over the summer and have failed to gain a win in the opening two games.

Jackett will address the weekend fixture with Alex Bass as the only absentee, so he has an otherwise fully fit squad from which to choose.

Craig MacGillivray will continue in between the sticks, playing behind a back line of Callum Johnson, Jack Whatmough, Sean Raggett and Lee Brown, meaning that new signing Rasmus Nicolaisen will miss out.

Tom Naylor and Bryn Morris have proved to be a good partnership in the midfield holding roles and it is likely that Jackett will not disrupt that partnership.

That partnership and security will allow the likes of Ronan Curtis (declared fit again by Jackett), Andrew Cannon and Marcus Harness to have some creative freedom and potentially provide for striker John Marquis.
